South Africa 2021

Come serve the nations with us! 

We invite you to join us on our 2021 ministry trip to South Africa! This will be our 6th year ministering there, and each year we have seen the kingdom of God break in so powerfully! Hundreds of people have come to the Lord, primarily one-on-one through signs and wonders, healings, and notable miracles. Over the past six years, we’ve witnessed the blind seeing, the deaf hearing, the crippled walking, and many other powerful kingdom encounters in the streets, townships, malls, restaurants, and churches. 

The focus of these ministry trips to South Africa is equipping the saints and churches to learn how to live out a lifestyle of putting Jesus on display with love and power. The uniqueness of these trips lies in the hands-on equipping you will receive. You will have opportunities and training to see the sick healed through your hands and to lead people into a personal relationship with Jesus through the power and demonstration of the gospel. You will also have the opportunity to learn to equip others to do the same. 

We are offering five separate ministry trips this year with Brian Blount and team. All ministry trips are through Serve the Nations (STN), the missions expression of Crestwood Vineyard Church.
